BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, July 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Following an exhaustive three-year restoration, Bobby Genovese's iconic Rambler, a 70-foot, 1903 Polson Iron Works Yacht, will make her debut at the Muskoka Lakes Association Show in Port Carling on Saturday August 9, 2014.

The boat was built for Alexander McKenzie, Treasurer of Canadian National Railways in 1903. Since then, Rambler has had five owners and has undergone three restorations. She was converted from steam to diesel in 1949 and had her second restoration completed in 1984-1985 by Vic and Hazel Carpenter for Tim Chisholm. Bobby Genovese bought Rambler from the Chisholm estate in 2012. The boat was restored for the third time by Paul Brackley and his staff over a two year period, from 2012 to 2014.

The Rambler will be joined by the recently-restored Miss Canada IV at the MLA Show. Miss Canada IV was built by Greavette Boats in 1948 -1949 in Gravenhurst and is powered by a Rolls-Royce Griffon engine. The boat was the first boat to exceed 200 mph. In 1950 she set a "one-way" record of 173 mph.

"It will be exciting to show these two newly-restored boats at the MLA boat show in front of such an enthusiastic and appreciative crowd," said owner Bobby Genovese whose Miss Canada IV took top honors at the 34th Annual Antique and Classic Boat Show in Gravenhurst, Ontario on, July 5, 2014 winning the "Best of Show Restored" award.

"These two great Canadian built classics are a part of Mr. Genovese's growing vintage race boat and antique boat collection," said BG Vintage Racing Team Manager, Jamie Smith. In addition to featuring the iconic Rambler and Miss Miami V, the Genovese collection includes Miss Canada III, Miss Canada IV, and Pistoff, the 1960, 970-horsepower Vic Carpenter custom runabout.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
The proper isolation of resources is essential for multi-tenant environments. The traditional approach to isolate resources is, however, rather heavyweight. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Igor Drobiazko, co-founder of elastic.io, drew upon his own experience with operating a Docker container-based infrastructure on a large scale and present a lightweight solution for resource isolation using microservices. He also discussed the implementation of microservices in data and application integrat...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and containers together help companies achieve their business goals faster and more effectively. In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of Dev...
In his General Session at DevOps Summit, Asaf Yigal, Co-Founder & VP of Product at Logz.io, will explore the value of Kibana 4 for log analysis and will give a real live, hands-on tutorial on how to set up Kibana 4 and get the most out of Apache log files. He will examine three use cases: IT operations, business intelligence, and security and compliance. This is a hands-on session that will require participants to bring their own laptops, and we will provide the rest.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

Updating DevOps to the latest production data slows down your development cycle. Probably it is due to slow, inefficient conventional storage and associated copy data management practices. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in Product and Solution at Tintri, will talk about DevOps and cloud-focused storage to update hundreds of child VMs (different flavors) with updates from a master VM in minutes, saving hours or even days in each development cycle.
